Can anyone comment on how Bremont works over ETA movements for the Supermarine 500 i own? Im curious what tweaks are made to that movement, apart from being COSC of course :)

Good question; I'd like to know myself. Well, they're high quality ETA movement since they're COSC certified. I know they use an engraved rotor as well. Beyond that, I don't what other modifications, if any, Bremont makes to their movements.

ETA chronometer grade movements are usually fitted with an upgraded balance wheel and regulating assembly, Anachron balance spring rather than Nivarox, a higher grade pallet fork and higher grade pallet fork stones, and movement decoration. Not sure if Sellita perform the same upgrades but I'd imagine they are similar.
